How PSG will punish Neymar’s pre-season no-show as Barcelona confirm nothing is happening

Neymar’s pre-season no-show, day 2

Last weekend, Telefoot told their viewers that Neymar would be back with PSG in the next “few days”, in order to start pre-season training.

That, though, has proven to be wholly wrong.

PSG began their pre-season training on Monday, July 8th. Neymar didn’t show up.

On Tuesday, it’s been confirmed that Neymar was again a no-show.

Neymar was last seen at the Copa America final last weekend, as Brazil beat Peru to lift the trophy.

Neymar missed this summer’s Copa America after sustaining an injury on the eve of the tournament.

How PSG will punish Neymar

Brazilian outlet UOL Esporte have reported on Tuesday that PSG are ready to react to Neymar’s no-show.

It’s claimed that PSG are planning to fine the Brazilian star, as per the terms of the “ethical conduct” provisions in Neymar’s contract.

So how much will PSG fine Neymar? Sadly, no figures are presented in the report.

What is presented, though, are examples of PSG’s previous actions in similar situations.

PSG relied on these ethical conduct clauses when they fined Marco Verratti after he was caught drink-driving in Paris.

Adrien Rabiot, who has now joined Juventus, was also fined last season for failing to show up to training.

Barcelona: No movement in the Neymar deal

While the press continue to link Neymar with a return to Barcelona, Barcelona keep rejecting those reports.

Last week, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said there was “no way” Neymar’s Camp Nou return was happening.

Bartomeu has spoken to the press again on Tuesday, and he’s again reiterated that the Neymar deal isn’t moving right now.
